Hi, Tim,
You can't see, but I am giving you a standing ovation. This is fantastic.

…but I’m bashful. You’re compliments mean a great deal to me. Thank you.

Lots of em.
Awesome Tim,

appreciation for a great Haiku! ~ Geez.

Writing purely for oneself, is the ultimate in defensive posture.

I can see a high level of creativity here. I doff my cap for you. Erudite ink!

"Poetry is invariably imbued with a sense of calm and serenity".


unless you are going to define Haiku somewhere (wouldn't know why)
Why not take it out of the title?
